Bart’s Books

302 W. Matilija Street  |  (805) 646-3755

We’re longtime fans of the largest (and coolest) outdoor bookstore under the sun. Roam the aisles for titles both new and pre-loved, and be sure to pop into the “kitchen” for cookbook gems like Kentucky Cookbook and a pretty epic edition of James Beard’s American Cookery.

300 E. Matilija Street  |  (805) 698-5555

If you’re lucky enough to be in Ojai on a Sunday, don’t miss the abundant and completely manageable farmer’s market downtown. Legendary long before Sunday marketing became a mainstream pastime, Ojai’s version teems with the area’s unique bounty including local olive oils, lavender everything (plants, honey, lotion) and citrus.
